Josh Hawley’s 2016 Attorney General campaign filed its third quarter campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October 15th:
C151132: Hawley For Missouri
Committee Type: Candidate
Po Box 1073 Party Affiliation: Republican
Columbia Mo 65205 Established Date: 07/23/2015
Information Reported On: 2015 – October Quarterly Report
Beginning Money on Hand $0.00
Monetary Receipts + $753,081.30
Monetary Expenditures – $35,106.19
Contributions Made – $0.00
Other Disbursements – $0.00
Ending Money On Hand $717,975.11
That’s three quarters of a million dollars raised in a little over two months. It’s easy, and not so impressive, when $600,000.00 of it came from four people. Just feel that grassroots momentum:
Only seventeen contributions accounted for the vast majority of the total amount raised in the quarter:
There were seven contributions form Washington, D.C., four from Georgia, five from Kansas, four from Maryland, five from New York, and fourteen from Virginia, just to name a few.
It’s not like there are campaign contribution limits in Virginia [pdf] and they need someplace else to spend all their money.
While the campaign has a lot of cash on hand it hasn’t burned through it at a high rate (as if there’s been time).
“Monetary Expenditures – $35,106.19”
